Will never be a Michelin star chef! Overpriced because they only have one seating per night.I would not recommend this restaurant when you can get Michelin rated dining in this area.

My Wife and I celebrated our 24th wedding anniversary last week at Chatham's Place. It was one of the best overall dining experiences we've ever had. From the moment we walked through the door to the time we left, the staff at Chatham's Place was...attentive and solely focussed on us having an amazing experience. In addition to the wonderful the atmosphere and staff, the food was exceptional. Highlights included a crab and corn chowder, duck breast in a blueberry sauce, and the best creme brûlée I have ever had!! In summary, nothing at Chatham's Place is an afterthought. Every item, movement, and guest interaction serves to make your evening one you will never forget.More

You can try every restaurant in Orlando and you will not find anything like Chatham's Place. You are greeted like family. Karen was super helpful and sweet in making our table festive with heart shaped confetti. One of our favorite things about dining here is...that you never know what gifts the kitchen will be sending out. Before even ordering we are treated to plump and flavorful olives and the most delicious bruschetta. We always ask for more. The drinks are done so well. They are not stingy with the liquor that is for sure. You will have the best martinis of your life here. We also love their bourbon selection. If you get a chance to talk with their sommelier Peter - you will be in for a treat. He is so knowledgeable and can tell exactly what you would want in a wine within minutes of speaking to you. The servers have been there forever too and will remember everything you like. Chef Tony is a treasure. Watch him work the room, he remembers everyone. I love listening to his stories about how he comes up with his recipes and about his farm. A more creative chef you will not find. We go there when they can squeeze us in. It is difficult to get a table same day but when we are in town we absolutely make an effort to go there. This past visit we had the caviar to start. His presentation is perfect. We always think we know what we want to eat - as we think about the dishes all the time. My favorite is the Rack of Lamb but also the Sea Bass when it is on special. We also love the Brie and the Crab Cakes. This night, there was a pasta special in a cheese wheel that we kept seeing other tables get. We went for that and we were blown away. The creamiest most flavorful and perfectly cooked pasta. The portions were good for an appetizer to share or a full meal for one. We had a special spinach salad that had goat cheese. We ended up ordering a chicken on the menu with mozzarella and tomato and also the special salmon that night with stewed tomatoes. We were so full but we never leave without the white chocolate soufflé. We look forward to our next visit.More

This is truly a fine dining experience. From the greeting at the door to the impeccable service (thank you, Kevin!), masterful presentations and subtle flavors to the special touches and live music, it is going to be a special night. I like my rack of...lamb medium to medium-well, and it was perfect. My wife’s cajun style grouper could have been a disaster of overwhelming spices, but not in Chef Tony’s hands. The baked cauliflower had exactly the right (light) amount of cheese, and was cooked to perfection. You pay for what you get, gladly. $130 for 1-1/2 bottles of wine; $200 for food, and $100 for a very well deserved tip.More

In a generation, in a culture, in a tourist town ... where the true art of dining is often overlooked, Chatham's Place maintains the graceful, time-honored tradition of "fine dining." I've been searching for a restaurant like Chatham's during the past three years we've lived...in Orlando; my only regret is that I did not find it sooner! We were warmly welcomed by Karen who was the hostess for the evening. She kindly asked if I would like a stool for my clutch. (Oh, la-la!!! Details like this go a long way with me!) Our server, Gabriel, took his time and allowed us to get settled in before he even handed us the menus or went through the specials. We were given an amuse bouche, then offered Champagne and Cocktails. I chose a Sidecar and my husband had a pear and ginger cocktail. Both were tasty, strong and served in generous sized glasses. We selected a lovely Gevrey-Chambertin and then listened to the specials. The staff are well trained and knowledgeable, as well as passionate, about the food on the menu. We ordered the chef’s special charcuterie, the duck, fruitti di mare, and artichokes. We decided to skip dessert and chose the Port cart instead. What a treat to have this rolled around to your table and personally select the bottle of your choice. We also had a taste of Chef Tony’s homemade limoncello. Divine! The food in itself was delicious, beautifully presented, the flavor profiles well thought-out without being fussy or over the top. Chef Tony doesn’t “try too hard” he just gets it right! For me personally, the food was heightened by the ambiance! Chatham’s exudes old-school charm. It’s cozy and candlelit, romantic and classy. It’s hard to miss the friendly banter between regular patrons and the welcoming staff. The table was beautifully laid. Applause for paying attention to detail and upholding proper dining etiquette without being stuffy or snobbish! I think that is the reason I liked Chatham’s Place best… the family-like atmosphere and relaxed ambiance that still upholds high culinary standards and proper attention to service. Bob the Piano guy is thoroughly entertaining, as well as a real ladies' man! (wink, wink to Bob from the Lady in Red) Thank you all for the best dining experience I have had in Orlando and can’t wait to return soon! – AmyMore

This is one of our favorite restaurants in the world and definitely the one that makes us feel most like coming home to family. Liza helped us with getting a table - we always drive down from Atlanta for dinner here. We were warmly greeted...by Sergio. We appreciated how thankful he was that we came for dinner. It was great to see Peter, Hugo, Gustavo, Chef Tony, Bob and especially Lorenzo. We always remember Maurice and his hospitality. The food tonight was as amazing as ever. I had a tuna duo and salmon special with the amazing cauliflower. Of course I had the souffle and espresso. We love coming here and always look forward to coming back. Thank you all.More

One of my favorite restaurants in the country. Had not been to Orlando in the 7 years since we discovered Chathams. Walked in and it was exactly the same, including the piano player and waiter. The food and wine were superb. Very small so make...your reservations early. Most of their clientele are regulars.More

We found this small high-end restaurant on Trip advisor. Thought we had made a reservation, but we had made a "request" which was not fulfilled. We showed up and they accommodated us on a small high table near the entrance. Did not matter we had...a wonderful meal and evening. This is a small restaurant owned by the chef who has a farm where much of the inputs come from. About 15 tables, only serve about 300 meals a week. The service was truly outstanding, the service impeccable and the food a rare treat. There was a piano player. It was obvious that almost all the patrons, the place was full, were regulars. This is not a place that caters to visitors to Orlando! It is well worth calling well in advance and making a reservation. Do not try on-line. It si well work the visit. plan on a full evening, there is only one sitting.More

We've been here a dozen times over the past few years, and the ONLY reason im not rating this place below average, is the outstanding service and atmosphere. This used to be one of the "hidden gems" in Orlando, and after tonight, I would not...recommend going there anymore. I totally understand that everything is more expensive because of covid, and inflation, but to have 80% of the menu set to MP (Market price) is completely ridiculous! I don't care how good your reputation is, but charging $62 for a 6oz filet, or $50 for a small portion of pasta bolognese is unacceptable! Service was once again impeccable, with our server Kevin truly going above and beyond the entire evening. We also loved that Bob was playing piano all night, and therefore, creating a relaxed and wonderful atmosphere. That being said, I was completely shocked to find out that their corkage fee is now over $40!!!! Are you kidding me? How does this have anything to do with inflation? There were 4 of us there tonight, and here was our order; Two bowls of soup, escargot, Burrata cheese, pasta bolognese, duck breast, a 5oz seabass, chicken breast, creme Brule, bananas fosters, and 3 glasses of wine. After taxes, and tips, our bill was over $550! As good as the food was, this was grossly overpriced. This "used to be" our favorite fine dining restaurant in Orlando, but we won't be going back there anytime soon...More

This is our favorite place to celebrate in Orlando. In fact there are only one or two other places that we have eaten in our travels that compare. The food is delicious and beautifully presented. The service is superior. There’s not just one server but...a team of servers to see to your every need. The ambiance is wonderful. The jazz pianist, Bob Rose, is a delight. When you visit Orlando don’t miss the opportunity to dine here.More

Yes! When we were there last we saw Bananas Foster prepared table side within a large pot to prevent the possible spread of flame. Not as spectacular as of old but safer.
